High Flyers Prepare for City Take-Off

Following the 2016 season kick-off at Possum Kingdom Lake, a remote cliff location in Texas, the men will this weekend return to a city setting when they tackle the 28m platform atop Copenhagen's famous Opera House.

#

In a sport where even the tiniest of variables can have major consequences, could the cooler climate and bustling urban scenery of this most northerly stop on the season calendar affect the mentality and physical performance of the world's best divers?

#

Sergio Guzman wraps up warm and summons up all his concentration for the first training session.

#

Artem Silchenko soaks up the city scenery while standing high above the water on the 28m platform.

#

Sergio Guzman and Alessandro De Rose take a good look at their 'office' for the next few days.

#

"Some of the conditions here make it a little bit of a tougher competition. The platform is a little bit higher, the water's colder. But actually moving from the cliffs to this urban setting isn't a huge deal" - Steven LoBue.

#

No pain, no gain - Blake Aldridge loosens the limbs with a vigorous massage.

#

Baby it's Kohl outside - Luxembourg's Alain Kohl chills out between dives.

#

Music and cliff divers...what more could the locals ask for with their food?

#

Jonathan Paredes captures the moment with (L-R) Alain Kohl, Orlando Duque and Alessandro De Rose.

#

Michal Navratil prepares his body for a 28m leap into the cold Copenhagen waters.

#

Never one to relax, this is the only way that Navratil knows how to put his feet up.

#

Against the magnificent city backdrop, Artem Silchenko fires himself into the Danish air for the first time.
